Forum: etree Subject: MD5 Checksum Failure for flac upload

I uploaded a show

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=30001

that I got from a friend via BitTorrent, and something went wrong. The status is "MD5 checksum verification failed. Waiting for user to correct." but there isn't any .md5 file, so I'm not sure what has to be done. As far as I know, the upload went just fine. I've never uploaded a show in flac before, so I may have got something really basic wrong, but I checked the file naming standards, and everything looks OK. (In particular, flac uploads don't use .md5 files as far as I can tell, but there was still an "md5 contents" section of the upload page to fill in, which, of course, blank. Do I need to create a .md5 file from the flac files and upload that as well?)

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Brad

Update: I used MD5 sum to generate a .md5 file from the .flac files, uploaded it, and pasted the contents of the .md5 file into the "MD5 contents" pane in the "arrange an upload" page. I've marked it as resolved in the contributions center, so here's hoping it works.

Thanks,
Brad

Hi Brad, you need to upload that MD5 to the same folder as the FLAC files, then click "Mark Resolved". "MD5 Failed" is a generic error indicating that the files fail their integrity check - in this case the FLAC -t test failed.

After generating and uploading the .md5 file, and pasting the MD5 contents in, it all started working properly. It turns out that I did have one file that hadn't transferred properly, and after re-uploading that file, the rest went just fine.

Thanks,
Brad
